The Kannaboom Credo
1. WHEN CANNABIS IS ILLEGAL, PEOPLE SUFFER.
Cannabis is a legitimate medicine for diseases like cancer, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s, and acute conditions like insomnia, anxiety and inflammation. Humans have used cannabis for thousands of years with no recorded fatalities and there’s a growing body of clinical studies that support the medicinal efficacy of the plant. Denying access to cannabis is cruel and inhumane; it leads to unnecessary suffering and death.
2. CANNABIS PROHIBITION WOUNDED US. IT’S TIME TO HEAL.
We’re still paying a catastrophic price — in needless deaths and disease, mass incarceration and lost opportunities — for nearly a century of racist-fueled anti-cannabis government propaganda. It’s beyond time to undo the damage and build a better future. We must end the tragic and colossal mistake of federal prohibition, enact sensible cannabis laws and embrace cannabis as a positive force in our economy and culture.
3. WE FIND TRUTH THROUGH SCIENCE.
All of us were lied to about cannabis for almost 100 years, and there’s still a lot of ignorance and misinformation about it. Some of that is now being displaced by magical thinking about CBD. At Kannaboomers we’re focused on verifiable data. We consult credentialed and trusted experts — doctors, scientists, leaders in business and culture — and cite rigorous certifications and clinical studies to discern what’s true and what’s not. We reject fly-by-night schemes, unsubstantiated claims, sketchy opinions, manipulative sales pitches and obvious untruths.
4. CANNABIS AND OTHER PLANTS TALK TO US IN MANY WAYS.
THC and CBD are the tip of the iceberg. We are just beginning to understand the interplay of the 113+ cannabinoids and 200 terpenes in cannabis, and the positive effects they can have on our bodies and minds. There are many ways to benefit from cannabis and hemp — you don’t have to get high if you don’t want to — and other plant medicines. We approach these opportunities with excitement and professional curiosity.
5. CANNABIS IS COMPLEX. WE’RE HERE TO SIMPLIFY IT.
Given the plant’s genetics and our own, it feels like a 3D matrix of overwhelming possibilities. We will gain clarity as the research expands, but until then we focus on the known. And in some instances, less information is more useful. We respect your time and intelligence, so we present concise, relevant, reliable information. Among the hundreds of CBD brands on the market, we feature the few that have been vetted by the U.S. Hemp Authority and meet the most stringent standards in the hemp industry. Other sites have lengthy, keyword-packed reviews on dozens of brands. We provide a shortcut to products you can trust.
6. WELLNESS BEGETS WELLNESS. CANNABIS CAN HELP.
Staying healthy — physically, mentally and emotionally — is a daily commitment. It’s easy to get derailed by distractions, obstacles and temptations. Cannabis can change your perspective, awaken your creativity, arouse your passions, give you access to laughter, allow for a good-night’s sleep. It can illuminate the absurd, help us heal our hurts, and show us the way to a more just and compassionate world.
7. WE ARE MAKING UP FOR LOST TIME.
Wrong-headed cannabis policies are still causing untold human suffering. It’s time to change this. The post-pandemic, post-prohibition era is an opportunity to correct some of the mistakes of the past; listen more closely to the earth and the plants that sustain us; adapt to new realities; enact social justice; and take better care of ourselves and each other. There are wrongs to right.
The story of cannabis is our story, and it urgently needs rewriting. Let’s get to work.
